Drummond Castle Glasshouse

Beyond the walled garden at Drummond Castle is the kitchen garden. Fruit trees, apples, plums, pears and roses  grow against the garden wall.

R. Dr W. van Fleet

Although the number of glasshouses has been reduced, the remaining Victorian glasshouses are still used for the cultivation of figs, peaches, nectarines and vines.

The glasshouses also contain a spectacular display of pelargoniums and other exotic flora.

The kitchen garden is about four acres in size, not all of it remains in cultivation today although it is still used for the cultivation of vegetables for the castle.
